      suggestions for a drive thru

      Connecticut Aug 17, 2015 at 1:43 PM

      My husband and I will be heading to Martha's Vineyard for a wedding, arriving in NY on the 7th and spending the 9th-11th at Martha's Vineyard and then back to NYC by the 13th. We plan on driving from LGA to Boston and then down to the wedding, then back to NYC. We'd like to see Boston, but not spend more than a day and a half. We enjoy local food and customs as well as flea markets. Any suggestions for an interesting, not too touristy, itinerary?

    • The Ride

      New York City 17 hours ago

      Anyone tried The Ride? It looks like lots of fun with a tour mixed with entertainment.

      For those that have tried it, is it fun? Appropriate for kids (the site says 6 and over and our younger one is 6)?

      Also, is it hard to get tickets? (with or without an explorer pass) If its something where you need to line up hours in advance, then not interested.

This holiday is our best yet we have spotted 49 out of the 50 US States with only Alaska to go. We've tried everything to spot one to no avail. We only have 3 days left! Does anyone know where we could find one on a friends vehicle or a colleague you may know in the vicinity of Orlando. Any advice would be greatly appreciated and you'd make two (three!) boys very happy. Thanks in advance.

      anybody have campgrounds they love near Big bear lake? I know Serrano, but it seems more for RVs, and Pine Knot maybe OK, but it sounds too near the town, and also the slanted sites on the hill may an issue. I have 4 kids, so hiking inland is not an option at this point. We have 1 big tent and 1 car.
      i don't have to be on the lake, but it would be nice to be near some water. maybe there is another location near Big Bear, another Lake....
      I only live an hour away, so I could travel farther if needed.

    • Shoes for hiking

      Maui Aug 5, 2015 at 9:13 AM

      we go to Maui this September. We are trying to figure out what shoes would be best for some hikes we plan to do.

      The shoes we plan to bring are Brooks Running shoes, Keens H2 Newport Hiking Sandals, and flip flops

      The hikes we are planning are:

      Twin Falls: we plan to wear the Keens, as we will be walking thru water and plan to go into the water falls. It doesn't make much sense, to wear tennis shoes to take them off and put on flip flops.

      Waihee Ridge Trail: Here is where i am not certain. A lot of post saying Hiking boots are best on this trail for traction. we are not bring hiking boots during travel. It doesn't seem worth it for a 2 hour hike. So I am left with the tennis shoes or my keens. My keens probably have more traction, but the tennis shoe probably has more surrounding support.

      Hi everyone

      We are four guys travelling to SLC in March 2012. As we will be fully equipped with a ski bag and a piece of luggage each, I was wondering if there is any advice on the best way to get to a downtown hotel without too much hassle with dragging our equipment around. I imagine a regular cab would not hold that much, so are there private shuttle companies with bigger vans that can be rented or some other options we should know about? Shuttle busses perhaps?

      Since we are from Europe, we don't have much clue as to cab fares, bus ticket prices and other costs, so any advice at all is really appreciated.
